Saint Cecilia Heritage Mansion, Peterborough
One of the more impressive historic buildings in Peterborough, South Australia, is Saint Cecilia Mansion, shown in today’s photos. I must admit that I have never been inside, or taken a tour and not even participated in one of the renowned Murder Mystery Banquets. Such an over sight on my part.
The local council tourist site states:
Saint Cecilia is the former Bishop John Norton’s mansion, a heritage listed ‘Edwardian-style’ building dating back to 1912. It was also the convent for the Order of Nuns and boarding school for the St. Joseph’s Catholic girls up until 1973. Today visitors can enjoy a Bed & Breakfast stay in any of the beautiful themed rooms and groups can enjoy Murder Mystery nights along with selected banquet themes. Tours are available every day between 11am – 3pm.
